SANTA ANITA

Race 1

32k maidens going a flat mile, there is a ton of early foot sign on but the one filly with speed is No. 5 At Your Service who has proven she can get this distance, after that those that may close today are. 3-6-7

Race 2

More fillies gong a flat mile and this one is no easier than the first, trainer Mark Casse has two entered No. 2 Step Lightly and No. 5 Twoformeoneforyou who looks best. 2-5

Race 3

This race we have older maiden fillies and mares going 7f and it just don’t get any harder than trying to handicap this group. No. 6 Keira’s Way is shipped in from the Golden Gate by high end trainer Frank Lucarelli and just may be the way to go as he drops into this maiden claimer. No. 7 Secret Potion has run three good ones in a row and just may like this distance. 6-7

Race 6

More maiden fillies but we may get a handle on this race as it is only a six furlong sprint. No. 4 She’s All Rev’d UP looks set for a big effort in start #2. No. 5 Kentucky Nectar loses Gomez which may be a good thing because he just butchered this filly last time out, she comes back in just seven days and looks to rebound big time. 4-5
